Not the Same

Skin color, gender, age and sexual orientation. Everyone personifies all of these traits all of the time. We want to be recognized for who we are. Because we are different. Equal is not the same as Fair. Want is not the same as Need. Not the same. Not the same. Not the same. Not the same.

Love Him Enough

Had I known he was calling out for us as he succumbed to lung cancer, I would have done nothing different. My father died in pain and alone, unbeknownst to his offspring. Divorce and fear kept us apart in every way. I never had a chance to love him enough to miss him.

    It takes talent, audacity and genius to “bare bones it,” with so few words. Rebecca, you have an abundance of those attributes and you knock me out in execution.

      I agree with Matthew…
      Matthew even your comments are poetic!

    Rebecca! You break my heart with these two poems. Thank you. I see your collages and these brilliant “nuggets” of poems in a book. YES!
